Their goal: To escape their troubles and the small-town hopelessness, and live like the outlaws of the Old West, robbing from the rich and giving to the poor - themselves. Their destination: Buffalo country and the Black Hills of South Dakota.But will they make it?Hunter, whos bitter and disillusioned with life following the death of his estranged father, and Wade, a tough but abused city kid with a lengthy arrest record, are already wanted by the police back home. They arent thinking about the new troubles theyll be making for themselves. Troubles that begin when they assault an old man and steal his car. And Billy, innocent and unassuming, simply longs to see the wild buffalo, but makes a choice before leaving that puts their plans in jeopardy.Complicating matters: As they slowly journey westward, Hunter becomes increasingly haunted by his past and begins to wonder if what theyre doing is going to be worth much of anything in the end.
